Rights and duties are co related. If one thing is somebody’s right, it is an others duty

porterage from you is the right of Mr. A and it is your duty to pay him the wage.
Similarly, Maulana Imam e Zaman ajs has numerous rights and all those rights are the
duties of ummah. If some one does not perform his duties, he is a sinner. But if some body
refuses and does not accept his duties, it is kufr as he will be out of the Islamic

and you will keep finding count less reasons behind the rights of Maulana Imam e Zaman ajs.
AN OTHER WAY TO UNDERSTAND THE SUBJECT
To understand the rights of Maulana Imam e Zaman ajs we adopt an indirect way. All of us
know very well that every momin has got certain rights over other mukmin brothers. This
exercise gives two benefits,
· we understand the rights of mukmin brother
· and we estimate the peak of the rights of our Maulana ajs.
If a momin has these much rights on you, how much should e the quantum of the
rights of Ameer ul Moomineen?
All these rights are narrated by Maasoomeen salwat ullah e alaehim ajmaeen.
1. If any body leaves his mukmin brother unbefriended and supportless, he will be
considered amongst his murderers. Imagine the gravity of the punishment for a
person who leaves his IMAM s.u.a. alone in enemies.
2. If some one accedes with the tyranny of a person, he is just like an associate of the
tyrant. If some one oppresses a momin in the east and the other momin living
even in the west does not feel grieved upon that, he will be considered as an
associate of that oppressor. Can we feel the gravity of oppressions being faced by
Maulana Imam e Zaman ajs ? let me give you some leads; Maula ajs has been
exiled, Maula ajs is in occultation which is considered equivalent to prison by
Maula ajs, Majority of the rights of Maulana Imam e Zaman ajs have been forfeited,
Maulana Imam e Zaman ajs has been devoluted from his heirship, Maulana Imam e
Zaman ajs has been deprived of his assets and ownerships, Maulana Imam e Zaman
ajs is highly grieved and people do not even realize that, no body feels
lamentation of Maulana Imam e Zaman ajs, his holiness has been deprived of his
right of global kingship, Maulana Imam e Zaman ajs has been deprived of helpers
and the supporters of Maulana Imam e Zaman ajs are very less.
3. If two mukmins are traveling together. One of them stays to attend the call of
nature and the other one does not wait and keeps walking till he disappears. The
one who has kept walking and not waited for his brother is classified as Maloon.
(What will be the status of those who are ignorant of their Imam ajs?)
4. It is a hadith of Holy Prophet SAW, he who spends more on him than his mukmin
brother, is not from us.
5. One should not like a thing for his momin brother that he dislikes for him.
6. Maula Ameer e Kainat sua revealed;
· Allah has put the rights of his devotees first to his own rights. Hence a person
who fulfills the rights of Allah’s devotees, can also fulfill the rights of Allah jj
( Ghurar ul Hikam)
· A person whose rights have been wasted by you, can not be your brother.
(Bihar vol 74, page165)
7. Maulana Imam Al Sadiq sua revealed;
· A person who grandeurs the religion of Allah, also knows the grandeur of the
rights of his brother. And a person who disburdens Allah’s religion also
undermines the rights of his brother. (Bihar vol 74, page 267)
· As any body can not describe our supremacy in a way it deserve and can not
fulfill our rights made essential for him in real terms, similarly no body can
either understand the supremacy of the rights of his mukmin brother or fulfill
his rights made essential by Allah jj. (Bihar vol 74, p 266; vol 76, p 42)
· Worship Allah jj to any level, but no worship is better than the observance of
the rights of a mukmin brother. (Kafi vol 2, p 170)
· It is right of a mukmin brother that he should be preffered over all the personal
needs. (Bihar vol 74 p 391; Khisal hadith 25)
· The easiest right of one mukmin over the other is that you like for him the same
as you like for yourself and dislike the same for him as you dislike for
yourself. (Kafi vol 2, p 169)
8. Maulana Imam Al Askari sua revealed;
· He is highly respected by Almighty, who recognizes the rights of his brothers
the most and delivers them to perfection. (Bihar vol 75 p117)
The above-mentioned eight points are just a few of the 1000s of holy sayings regarding
the rights of a mukmin. We can easily asses the importance of the rights of Imam sua from
it when we visualize and realize “ How more important is Imam sua than a momin in the
eyes of Allah”. How great maloon and sinner will be a person who deprives Imam sua
from his divine rights. Following are a few rights of Maulana Imam e Zaman ajjal Allah o
